Natural Selection is a very thin crack in a small right facing corner about 30-40 yards left of Catapult. There is a small roof halfway up. Start a little to the right and climb easy rock to a stance 30' up. Here, step left into the shallow corner. There's no distinct crux, pretty fun climbing the whole way.

We were actually able to do it with one 70m rope to the top, then rapped off the slung block to a slung horn/pinnacle to climbers right, then to the ground. Great climb.

The falcon guide gives Natural Selection a bunch of stars and rates it as 11a. This climb has everything from tips to hands and takes gear of all sizes relatively well. Sweet Route.

Classy line, well-protected at the crux with tiny nuts/cams. Two raps with one 60M cord will get you down. No need to haul a second rope out there. New sling added to the horn rap station 11/2012. 4 out of 5 stars in Randy's book = Josh classic.
